Send me your recorded answer for the IELTS speaking test and find out what score you are likely to achieve and get suggestions about how to improve.
I will give you feedback under each of the four criteria: fluency and coherence, pronunciation, lexical resource [vocabulary], and grammar. This will help you to discover where you are making mistakes and what you need to work on in order to increase your score.
This is also an excellent way to prepare model answers for the speaking test and have these models verified and checked to make sure you don’t have any errors.
As well as this I may be out to diagnose any issues you have when speaking. For instance, based on your first language you may have pronunciation errors. In addition, I can get suggestions about places where you can use more advanced language such as idiomatic expressions.
If you want to do this follow these steps:
1. Choose a speaking question from my site, or use your own question:
2. Make a payment using the link below. The fee is $16 per answer.
3. Record your answers to the questions

5. I will return your recording along with feedback within 36 hours
6. You are welcome to ask questions about the feedback

Sample Feedback of 7.5-8 band level speaker
The following is an example of feedback I have given to a student on their IELTS Part Two speaking test recordings.
|Describe a trip to a beach that you enjoyed.|
You should say:
* Where it is located,
* When you go there
* What you do there
and explain why you enjoyed this beach.
Underlined = word added
Crossed out= word is deleted
there a beach THERE
:34 the beach is a little bit hidden
:37 snorkel = good vocabulary
are also sit in the sand
:52 often we
would bring a bottle [present tense needed for repeated actions]
1:00 This place is where we
were talking we talked for the first time about
1:07 fish and chip
s shop nearby
1:17 calamari and prawns= good vocabulary
Fluency and coherence:
You are strong here…you have plenty to say and it comes out at a good pace
You spoke for 1.55 minutes which is excellent
Some minor hesitations only
You pronounce all sounds correctly
Overall rhythm is good
Good use of intonation
Error with word ending
fish and chip
lots of great topic specific language
calamari and prawns
Errors are rare and you use lots of topic specific vocabulary indicating an 8, but there is not sufficient advanced language for 8. My only suggestion is to use more idiomatic language: Like maybe: breathtaking views, stunning scenery.
A few minor errors throughout prevents 8 but not 7
the beach is a little bit hidden
auxiliary verb should not be used
past tense needed
This place is where we
Auxiliary verb should not be used here
avoid would and use present simple tense for facts and opinion
|I feel there may be one grammatical error too many to reach 8, so this is the area you should work on most. Some idiomatic language would also be useful to ensure you reach 8 for vocabulary. Fluency and pronunciation are excellent.|
